The Bee Hut: Poems 2001-2008

Author(s): Dorothy Porter; Andrea Goldsmith (Foreword by)


The Bee Hutbrings together the poems Doroty Porter wrote in the last fi ve years of her life. By turns expansive and intimate, effusive and contemplative, these poems roam widely - into history and to sacred places both mythic and personal. Porter's writing glows and shimmers with passionate curiosity and exuberant love of life. from' Caesarea' Sometimes a new place has the ferocity of a gale ripping the calm off a safe harbour making the drowned bells peel Hallelujah for all your future false prophets and glorious. glorious. lost gods. '(Dorothy Porter's)' poems are short, powerful, beautiful and sometimes brutal. Each poem is a portrait, a sensation, a short story, a joke, or a reflection in itself.' -The Times
